-Destroyer-

Ice-Breakers:

What in your life are you most proud of?

How can pride be positive? How can it be destructive?

Questions:

1. Read I Peter 5:8. Are you “on your guard” about the devil on a daily basis?

2. Read 2 Chronicles 26:16 and Proverbs 16:18.

  • Why do you think your enemy wants you full of pride?
  • How easy is pride to see in others? How easy is it to see in yourself?
  • Why do you think pride is this way?

3. Read the account of Satan’s fall in Isaiah 14:12-15.

  • Pastor Bryan said, “You may never be more vulnerable than when you are full of pride.”
  • How have you experienced this?
  • What are you trying to do without God?
  • Have you ever tried to use God to accomplish your will? Share a story.

4. Read James 4:6-8, 10.

  • Why does God oppose the proud?
  • What does it mean to submit to God?
  • How do you resist the devil?
  • What’s an area of your life where you need to humble yourself before God? What would that look like for you?

Application:

  • Ask someone close to you to tell you about any blind-spots to pride you may have in your life.
